The New York City-based indie punk band The Shondes have no problem mixing their politics and music—and having plenty of fun along the way. The band released its latest album, Searchlights, this past September on Exotic Fever Records, and have now released a new music video for the song "Give Me What You've Got". We've got an exclusive look at the rocking track.
The video was directed by Emily Millay Haddad of Circles of Fire Productions and was shot in November 2011 in various New York City locations, the streets of Dumbo, the Grand Army Plaza, and "on a sunny rooftop in Prospect Heights," according to band member Temim Fruchter.
Ready to catch the band on tour? They are making a major sweep in the South this month. In an interview with The Advocate, Fruchter explained the southerly route by saying, "There's plenty of awesome progressive stuff — and all kinds of stuff — happening all over the country, and not just in major urban centers. Actually sometimes it's the small towns and cities and places we haven't been before where we get some of the warmest welcomes and encounter some of the awesomest activism and art."
